"How it all began...

I grew up surrounded by magazines... wanted to be a model, but was too insecure... decided on rockstar/ painter instead... painted what I saw in mags... J.C. Penney for clothes, Playboy for girls, Nat Geo for the world... painted them until I got sick of it... bought a camera to gather my own material... first day of shooting was the last day of painting... taught myself how to shoot... studied everything on photography... asked millions of questions... was told "only downside of being self taught, is that you will pass up your teacher"... that happened. 

I enrolled in the AAU... went to fashion events with no experience... covered street style, runway, backstage... bought a ticket to NYFW... showed up, got in, got kicked out, went somewhere else, got back in.... later covered MBFW in New York, London, Milan, and Paris... Ralph Rucci, Francesca Libertore, Nanette Lepore, and Phoebe English... many, many more.

A few highlights so far... shooting with Bill Cunningham in NYC... talking "Supers" with Arthur Elgort in Paris... London boys and Milanese women... celebs and street kids... blizzards, heatwaves, a million bowls of ramen and cups of coffee...and of course, Lagerfeld. 

A good friend told me to Include Yourself... I have."
